Jurassic World An Spoiler Filled Examination of the Record-Setting Blockbuster: The Good, Bad, & Ugly

Jurassic World Spoiler filled movie review

(Spoiler Alert: You Have Been Warned)

I fell in love with Jurassic Park when it was first released. In fact, it was one of the first movies I remember seeing opening weekend as a kid. My parents took a ten-year old me to watch it at a drive-in!

So it was with great anticipation that I mused over the trailer last December, after having exposed my love for the first Jurassic Park film earlier last summer.

Cadets by Edward Miller is Great Young Adult Science Fiction for Everyone

I had not read Young Adult fiction for a very long time, before Cadets showed up in the mail, as a gift from author Edward Miller.

The Last Superbowl by George R R Martin

Sports are universally beloved. Geographically, the athletic competitions take on various forms; the NFL, NBA, MLB are strong in America; NHL in Canada; Premier League in Europe; and Cricket in India.

But the now legendary George R. R. Martin wrote about the downfall of them all in “The Last Superbowl,” a fantastically written short story in February 1975’s issue of Gallery Magazine, a men’s magazine.
